Are you still using the enemas?

You could consider to use a fibre supplement to bulk up the stool (it'll absorb the excess water from runny stools)

*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals 
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)

No I haven't been using the enamas sense the blood was gone. Do you think those will help? I will start taking my fiber supplement again and see if that helps as well.


Thank you,
Melissa

Hi
In regards to your bowel control/urgency I would check your diet.  Too much sugar, nuts, corn for example could bring on urgency problems.  When I cut out alot of sugar in my diet the urgency stopped.  Its worth a try.. and individual for everyone.
Good luck
Jo

You're having the urgency/control because of the rectal inflammation (since that'e where you'll have the first inklings of inflammation in a flare).

Since you haven't been using them, even tapered to maintenance...I'd suggest you start them again nightly. As soon as you start to feel normal..continue them nightly for a few more days to a week and then go to every two nights.
